The City of Cape Town’s Lansdowne Clinic will be closed from Tuesday 24 January until Friday 24 February to allow for an essential upgrade of the floor.

Services will continue at the Honeyside Clinic during this time.

Siyabulela Mamkeli, Mayco member (Central)  says residents have been informed of the closure.

“This primary health care facility has a community-oriented programme aimed at improving the health and well-being of families in the Lansdowne and Flamingo areas. The community has been informed of the upcoming closure on a daily basis when they visited the clinic and posters advising of the closure were put up at businesses and in the community. Regular clients who are currently on treatment were informed telephonically,” Mamkeli says.

He says to minimise the impact on patients, all services will still be active and running at the Honeyside Clinic on the corner of Belgravia and Honeyside roads in Athlone.

“Residents can also make use of other clinics within their areas. For example, residents from Hanover Park can visit the Hanover Park Clinic,” Mamkeli says.

While the clinic serves the Lansdowne area, the 2 200 monthly clients also come from Hanover Park, Ottery, Kenwyn and the industrial areas in the suburb.

“During this month-long upgrade, the entire floor of the facility will be redone.”

The cost of the upgrade will be just over R94 000 and will assist in making the floors easy to clean, ensuring compliance with infection control policies.
